with the most on the line one might argue in this battle uaw president bob king joining us from lansing. welcome back inside "the war room". >> thank you jennifer. good to be with you. >> you were one of the ones who was locked out of the capitol today. has that ever happened to you before? >> no. it hasn't. pretty unbelievable. i don't know it's happened in michigan before. >> if everybody was locked out today and the court ruled the building has to be opened will people be coming back on tuesday for the completion of this act? >> oh, yeah. there will be a big turnout of working people working families on tuesday. >> tell people what this whether mean for the uaw if this passes >> it's more what it means for the citizens of michigan right to work states have lower wages, great he were income disparity t funding for public education. all of these negatives for the citizens of michigan that's what right to work brings to a state. it does not bring economic prosperity. i have heard the governor and some others say, well indians is getting a lot of jobs. that
with a decision that answer where do i believe i can make the best difference. >> hum. >> i feel like bob schieffer asks those questions so say whoever he is asking those questions to say i haven't really thought about that, bob, the business of newark is in front of me. >> yeah, this is somebody who rushed into a neighbor's house that was on fire to save that person's life. he is currently trying to exist on food stamps so he can better relate to people doing that. he is going to get to write his own ticket. i do think it is shrewd of him though to think about bypassing the governor's race with christive that could be an extremely expensive race at a time when he could sort of waltz into the senate. i would behe bypasses on the chris christive match up, and runs for senate. >> yeah and frank laudenberg is going to be 90 years old. he might say i'm going to let cory booker have his chance. current tv unbelieve correspond dent -- >> michael we're going to find the video of frank laudenberg rush going a burning house to save people as well, so don't you worry. >>
about one state you've done a lot of reporting on, virginia. governor bob mcdonnell and ken ush nelly are calling for -- virginia is a bellwether state. which way do you think they're going to go? >> virginia went for president obama in the presidential election by about three points. polls showed that by a 9% margin despite huge, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars of expenditures on virginia by the nra voters in virginia preferred president obama's approach on guns to mitt romney's by 9 points. so i think there's definitely a popular sentiment in virginia that we need to do something. >> john: josh, i realize americans love guns the way the rest of the world loves soccer but it is encouraging to hear how nra members support closing the gun show loophole and sensible background checks. i thank you for the terrific reporting you've done for think progress. josh israel, political reporter for think progress. >> thanks very much. >> john: coming up, do you remember the scene in the bible where jesus side lo
the author of "beyond outrage." he is joining us tonight from berkeley, thank you so much bob for joining me today. >> well good evening, jennifer. i'll tell you this is something that only tangentially touches on my normal topics but goes to the heart of the moral understanding and ability of americans to take action. i think we have reached a tipping point here. i think the normal approach we take as a country, because of an at attention deficit disorder that we have in the media is when some horrendous thing like that happens, we talk about gun control and change and then we sort of lose our way. the gun lobbies become more activated, and then when it looks like we are serious, they mount all of their possible cloud. i think this time it is going to be different. there's no way that americans are going to forget 20 six year olds and the way they were gunned down. i think we're going to see a change. >> jennifer: i hope you are right. you were in president clinton's administration. do you think this will be a changing of the political climate to make the passage o
hagel is the president's top pick for defense secretary. and that -- that would be replacing bob gates. that would have left senator john kerry out of luck because u.n. ambassador susan rice was in line for the state department post. and then this bombshell... >> good day. we're coming on the air right now to break exclusive word that the united states ambassador to the united nations ambassador susan rice, has transmitted word to the president of the united states that she is withdrawing her own name from any future consideration for nomination to become perhaps the next secretary of state. >> jennifer: wow! and then president obama in response to her letter, released a statement saying... >> jennifer: he is, of course, referring to the relentless attacks from republicans who suggested that she purposely misled the country about the benghazi attack that killed ambassador christopher stevens. joining me now is bill press. he's most of current tv's "full court press." he's author of "the obama hate machine." the lies,
. governor rick perry governor bob mcdonnell said they supported allowing guns in schools. mcdonnell said his state should consider arming teachers and principals and other school staff. and he's not alone. today republican legislators in florida, south dakota and tennessee said they plan to introduce similar measures in the next session. and we're going to know more on friday because the nra is going to hold a press conference on friday announcing its plans. the organization said it is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. we'll see what that means. but the nra does not have to set the agenda for us. we do not have to be helpless. we can do something. so as a call to action for congress, on a day when two more small bodies were buried in connecticut, please close the gun show loophole. make the background check a safer process. second, ban any new sales transfers, importation possession of assault weapons. third, ban high-capacity clips of more than 10 bullets.
